The big studios would lose more on lawyers fees than they would hope to gain by suing me. I'm on disabilty.

The movie industry mostly goes after companies (unlike the Record Industry who mostly go after individuals) for the higher potential per infringement penalties. The DVD companies can usually be insured for the damages if they show basic diligence in checcking, or third party supplier certification of, copyright status. The major studios employ entire legal departments for this sort of stuff. They don't always take the DVD cos to court. I have seen cease and desists where payment of all revenue from the title has been demanded. I suppose that forms the basis of an out of court settlement with the DVD co or their insuror.
